Bumbershoot  kicks off this today, bringing three days of music, art, comedy, and film to Seattle ! This year the Emerald City festival is going green in a big way by boasting an entirely carbon neutral production  and offering offset purchases for visitors via NetGreen . Hydration stations, biofuel generators , and signage repurposed into tote bags  represent just a few of the festival’s sustainable features.
With the goal of of decreasing environmental impact while supporting art, music, culture and the local community, Bumbershoot  always gets a crowd moving and motivated, rain or shine. The festival opens Saturday and runs through Monday with headliners including Beck , The Stone Temple Pilots , and Death Cab for Cutie .
In addition to the festival’s carbon-neutral clout, Bumbershoot will be rolling out the three R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle) in full effect, exploring green sources of power, and will feature an exhibition of thought-provoking eco art . Stay tuned for more coverage throughout the week!
